HTC M8 Hands-on Review: Competition For The Samsung Galaxy S5

As noted in the keynote address in the video above, this phone is like a piece of jewelry. It also has a modified Android Kit Kat OS with something called Sense 6. In order to fully understand how all that stuff works, I have linked to a 38 minute video that takes the time to explain all of these incredible features. Because I believe this phone to be the biggest contender to the Samsung Galaxy S5, I feel that it is important to let readers know more about this innovative product. The camera is to die for if one is serious about smartphone photography. –Stu Brown

Today HTC unveiled the new HTC One, the much anticipated successor to identically named HTC One – 2013’s most critically acclaimed phone. To separate the two HTC is naming the new handset the ‘HTC One (M8)’ while it is now also referring to its predecessor as the ‘HTC One (M7)’. Yes the branding is something of a mess, but having attended the launch and had a half a day with my M8 review sample I can comfortably say in (almost) every other way HTC is onto another winner.

Design – Changes For The Better
At first glance not much looks to have changed, but on closer inspection HTC has made a number of subtle yet very welcome improvements.

The most obvious is the switch from a 4.7in to 5in 1080p Full HD screen which brings the M8 in line with the LG Nexus 5 (5in) and closer to the Samsung Galaxy S5 (5.1in) and LG G2 (5.2in). HTC is keeping quiet about the screen technology inside the M8, but with the bar already raised high the handset matches the razor sharp images of its rivals and appears to have better colour saturation and even wider viewing angles than the already excellent M7. –Read more: HTC One (M8) Hands-on Review: First Impressions Suggest Stiff Competition For The Samsung Galaxy S5
